DRACUT -- Firefighters acted quickly Saturday afternoon to douse a blaze at a senior housing complex on Mammoth Road, though four residents living in four different units have been displaced.
Deputy Fire Chief Mike Ralls said nobody was hurt,
The fire was called in about 12:58 p.m. Ralls said it took just two minutes for firefighters from nearby Station 3 on Lakeview Avenue to reach the scene at 971 Mammoth Road, site of Dracut Housing Authority residences.
Ralls said residents have all made arrangements to spend the night with either family or in other authority rooms.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Ralls said the fire burned holes in the floor and walls of the units while smoke also contributed some damage.
Firefighters had the blaze knocked down by 1:34 p.m., Ralls added.
The same row of units is no stranger to mishaps. Last March a senior driver and her female passenger were taken to the hospital after the woman's Toyota Camry was struck from behind by another car, careening into the side of one of the units.
